History

The mill was founded in the early 19th century. By the middle of the 1800's, other commercial developments opened at the mill, including a country store and a post office. Services provided helped support the growing community of Union Ridge

The mill was purchased in the 1880's by Rawlings Sammons, an African-American miller.

No traces of the mill are visible because it was covered when the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir was created in the 1960's. [1]
